The popular Stirling Market has
been named the Adelaide Hills Council
Community Event of the Year.
The honor was bestowed on the market’s
volunteer-run committee last week at the
council’s Australia Day ceremony at Stirling.
The monthly market has been running
for more than 25 years, growing from small
beginnings in the carpark of the Organic
Market and Café in Stirling to its current day
location on Druid Avenue.
Market chairperson Richard James said the
market had become a tourism destination
but it was also supported by locals and
had developed a well-earned reputation for
encouraging artisans and local food producers.
Over the past three decades the market has
also donated more than $150,000 from profits
to Hills community groups and charities.
